Alexandra Dariescu piano
Alexandra Dariescu stands out as an original voice whose fundamental values are shining a light on gender equality in both her concerto and recital programmes as well as championing lesser-known works, advocating for diversity and inclusion. These values are reflected in her chosen programme for this performance as we hear music from French female composers
Germaine Tailleferre and Lili Boulanger.
In demand as a soloist worldwide, Dariescu has performed with leading orchestras, and premiered numerous new works, and produced eight critically acclaimed recordings.
Boulanger Prelude in D-flat
Boulanger Trois morceaux
Tailleferre Valse lente/Pastorale/Romance
Debussy L’isle joyeuse
Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker Suite (arr. by Mikhel Pletnev, Percy Grainger and Gavin Sutherland)
